WalMart to sell hormone-free milk

Blogging stocks reports on Wal-Mart's plans to start selling milk from cows that are not treated with growth hormones. The milk will be offered under Wal-Mart's Great Value brand name. The post notes that growth hormones are used to increase milk production, but "critics argue that those cows are less healthy and are, in turn, more likely to be treated with antibiotics" and that the website "says that most European countries and Canada ban importation of U.S. milk for this very reason."
